of course you can never get to much practice

If guns are outlawed I'LL BE AN OUTLAW!!!!!!!!! If guns kill people then beds cause pregnancy.

Glockster is right

Practice makes perfect. The more you do it the less likley you will slip up when you accualy have to use it.

Dont practice till you get it right, practice till you cant get it wrong.

of going to the range, you should consider "DRY PRACTICE", which can be done safely, every day, at home.

I agree. Practice dry firing (make sure your gun is safe) at least several times per week.

you can practice at home besides at the gun range. I practice at home all the time.

I agree with LLE

I practice drawing from concealment daily at home, and every time I get ready to leave the house, I draw 10 times with the outfit I have on, even though my style of dress doesn't change that much from day to day. Practicing at home can also show flaws in your setup that you don't want to find out about when it's real. For instance, I found that when carrying my Glock in my Galco paddle holster under a t-shirt, sometimes the t-shirt would snag on the bottom of the holster. I also tried small of the back carry, and it is terrible with a closed front garment like zipped up jacket or t-shirt. You should definitely practice it more than once a month.

until drawing your gun is as quick and natural as pulling out your wallet, practice away

The best and cheapest way to conceal any weapon is with a folded news paper.

No one would normally suspect a person walking around with a founded new paper to be armed and dangerous ready to defense him, or herself.

Thank you

Manny, seriously

That is ridiculous. Have your gun in the newspaper, and when a mugger clocks you in the back of the head, your gun goes flying. Fuck, Mexican carry is a better idea thatn that. You watch too much TV. I'm not going to resort to name calling, but with all due respect, I think you might be mentally retarded. "BUT I SAID WITH ALL DUE RESPECT"!!! Ah, Ricky Bobby is God.
